Why Parents Have Grey Hair!

The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers.

He dialled the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whispered, “Hello?”

Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster the boss asked, “Is your Daddy home?”
“Yes”, whispered the small voice.

“May I talk with him?” the man asked.
To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, “No.”

Hidden Treasures

Pearl Ijeoma Ezeokeke:

I love him, I love his mind and I love how he puts it down on paper.

From my Red. Enjoy.

Courage:

“Everything must be fulfilled.”

Jesus knew that He was going to suffer excruciating pain for us at the cross, yet He faced it with courage. We always have one thing or the other that we need courage for; to face each day. We can count on Him to grant us the courage we need.

The Bible, like a goldmine, is filled with precious truths. Sometimes Scripture is very clear about what it says, but sometimes we need to drill deep and do some excavation work ourselves (by the help of His Spirit of course). However, when you dig, what you find becomes much more precious. (For where your treasure is there your heart will be also).

Today, I started my morning drawing strength from this verse and I want to share it with you.

Why I Love Jesus

So, I was nominated by Mary (A.I. Mercygrace) to talk about why I love Jesus. No, it’s not the ALS IceBucketChallenge and it’s not akin to that.

Why I Love Jesus

How Does Advertising Work?

I have often wondered about this; how does advertising work? How does the advert of a company’s good/product make me, Ijeoma, buy that good/product?

And believe me, I have seen plenty marvellous adverts especially on Youtube; Van Damme’s epic splitThe T-Mobile Welcome Back ad… If I continue, space no go dey.

And hey, have you seen this very beautiful Pomo Rice advert? I LOVE it!

 

 

How many goods have I bought because I saw the advert and I was impressed, and then bought it? How about you, have you had any situation like this? Has advertising worked for you? Please tell me oh ‘cos I really want to know.

Etisalat's Nigerian Idol

Etisalat’s Nigerian Idol

The one that is even more perplexing for me is when Etisalat sponsors Nigerian Idol or MTN’s Project Fame etc.

I understand that they can make money from it from just the text messages you send to vote for contestants but I’m more concerned about if the fact that I’m so happy MTN is sponsoring Project Fame will make me go out and get an MTN line knowing how crappy their service can be.

Will I open another account with GTBank because they are sponsoring a show I like, Gidi Up?

 

By the way, I tried to open a current account with them; I submitted all the forms they required and what not. It’s been over 2 months and shikom, I haven’t heard from them.

I have ka ha bad.

 

So, let me know, I’m very interested in how this stuff works.

Daalu.

 

 

Voting the man not the party

I think I am back to regular programming. I sincerely apologise for the break in transmission and I promise to do better from here on out…

It is like Olatoxic said in this here post, I Forgot, I just forgot how to write.

*sigh*

 

So, I want to talk about Jimi Agbaje joining the PDP and running for Lagos State governor in 2015.

Jimi Agbaje Joins PDP Ahead Of 2015 Gubernatorial Election In Lagos

I remember that most people were sold on this “voting the man and not the party” thing when GEJ first contested for the presidential elections. Look where we are now. But the thing is, I have always liked Jimi Agbaje and have always wanted him to be governor of Lagos. And the other thing is, I seriously yabbed people who voted for the man and not the party in GEJ’s case.

Jimi Agbaje

Do you see what I am saying here?

Remember all the “kick PDP out” campaigns and slogans and ish? Well, how do I kick PDP out when I want to vote for Agbaje?

I really like the man and I want to vote for him in 2015.

 

Hmmmmnnnnn…

Sara Bareilles – BrAvE

I think it was Tamara who first gave me a Sara Bareilles song titled Gravity a few years ago. Some people or someone danced to it in one of those shows and she wanted me to listen to the song. I was taken in by the song and some of her other songs since then. So I was delighted when I found out that she had a new single out and I wasn’t let down. This song has been my mantra for a few weeks now, it has helped me say a few things I’d been holding back for a long time.

Enjoy.

 


 

Brave

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just want to see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue

Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
See you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

:)
